Indie Wednesdays: The Stanley Parable

Indie Wednesdays: The Stanley Parable

Enter Stanley. The protagonist in The Stanley Parable, well, presumed protagonist. This is a meta game, there can be no doubts about that. However, the rest is speculation. Stanley is worker number 427, which alone sparks questions. 4-2-7. Could this be a reference to Adam Douglas number 42, representing the meaning of life? Or maybe a comment on the modern working force, being online and in some ways working 24/7. Welcome, to this weeks indie blog post on The Stanley Parable.

SPENT: Could you survive on a low income?

The way I see it, video games can be a very good medium to tell stories. Since players are participating actively in driving the narrative forward. The online game Spent attempts to make use of this in a different manner, by placing us in the struggles of a person with low income in the US.

First of all, let me just say that I absolutely loved this game. Played it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it is probably one of the most atmospheric and engrossing games I have played to date, even though it was released in 2007.
